    The peacefulness of olive trees which have existed for hundreds of years. Yet, so significant when considering the historical steps of our Lord Jesus Christ. A must visit.

    This is a pretty good zoo. There are several well-built habitats, including for orangutans, chimpanzees, otters, prairie dogs and wolves. Lots of birds, many very colorful. An Australian section, a South American section, a section with many types of deer plus giraffes.
    And the walk through is very pleasant; in my opinion more pleasant than the Jerusalem Botanical Garden.

    The remnants of Herodion, Masada and Caesarea are places you must visit in Israel. Each was conceived by King Herod more than 2,000 years ago and it is remarkable how much of each site survives today. King Herod's vision, and his capacity for design, engineering and construction are simply off-the-chart.

    This is an oasis of peace sandwiched between busy high roads. I am not a botanist, but enjoy wandering through the paths between exotic species.

    The Haas promenade offers a sweeping view of Jerusalem. If you’re after a daylight view, try to go on a clear, sunny day. We visited around noon, and with the sun to our back, the contrast of blue sky against the white buildings was spectacular! A plaque points out the major landmarks. The old and the new, with several thousand years of history in between – stretched out in front of you!

    This is a small park situated along a quiet stream with lots of picnic tables sitting under shady trees. It seems to be a popular spot for families. We visited to see the ruins of a Crusader fortified farm called Acqua Bella that dates from 1160. The front wall standing 12m high is pretty impressive. There are more rooms and ruins to explore inside although the site itself is not large. Since the ruin is located within the national park, you have to pay the full entrance fee of 22 shekels per person to see it. It’s a 15 minute walk along the stream to reach the ruin. The ruin was empty when we were there on a weekday afternoon so we had the whole place to ourselves. There’s lots of parking and toilets too.

    We have hiked the path with a group of people at the age of 60th & 70th. We started at the top parking lot to the bottom parking lot. Despite rather short walk (3KM) for some of the group members it was difficult due to lot of uneven stairs. We loved the nature scenery. On the path here are several small springs surrounded with trees. Some areas are used for ancient agriculture practice by residents from the area.

    An extraordinary countryside experience sandwiched between busy main roads. A piece of wild land has been carved out, partly for gazelles and partly for people. Once you are in the valley it is hard to believe that you are surrounded by the city. If you want to see gazelles go early in the morning or in the evening. The gazelle section is separated from the people section. The Visitors Centre is staffed and helpful, with maps in Hebrew English and other languages. One warning: the path marked on the map as a cycle path only exists in part, and even that part is not for the fainthearted, either in terms of the surface or the slope!
    I only discovered this park about two months ago, and have been at least six times since: it is only a 10 minute trip along cycle paths from my home in central Jerusalem. Apart from the gazelles there are other forms of wildlife, many different species of birds, plants… And yesterday I nearly cycled over a baby tortoise or possibly a turtle.

    This is a historic landmark and should be visited if your touring Israel. Just a short walk from the Garden of Gethsemane you can view the Kidron Valley. It's a must see place.

    Interesting cave or former quarry of stone for the rest of the Old City in Herodian times, due to Covid 19, sometimes it maybe closed and they are also doing some restorations, it is a huge site, and in the past they did concerts there

    One of the interesting points on the Mount of Olives, and a point of pilgrimage as well. Well worth stopping by.
